Join us for the first of the RAM 2021 Invited Guest speaker sessions!

NOTE: This talk has been moved to 9AM July 13th. Apologies for any inconvenience caused.

This morning's talk is live from Brazil!

Miguel Nicolelis* is a world renowned expert in Brain Machine Interfaces, and today he has kindly agreed to speak to the OIST community about his research:

A View of the Future for BMI Basic Research and Clinical Applications

In this talk I will initially discuss how BMI experiments will continue to play a major role in basic research by showing how they have already allowed us to demonstrate the existence of a variety of neurophysiological functions, such as space coding and social interaction mapping, not commonly associated with the motor cortex of non-human primates. I will also describe a combination of approaches that will allow BMI to fulfill its long-anticipated mission of providing new therapies for patients suffering from severe spinal cord injuries. In this context, I will describe the clinical advantages of a protocol that combines multiple non-invasive techniques into a single neurorehabilitation approach for such patients.
